Canon imagePRESS C7000VP goes off with a bang for Ferntree Print

When it comes to printers, Bernard Poff thought he’d seen it all – until he witnessed the Canon imagePRESS C7000.

The manager of Melbourne company, Ferntree Print, is not one for changing his mind at will, but the C7000 soon persuaded him otherwise. "I had originally ordered another digital press, but promptly put it on hold when I saw Canon at last year’s PrintEx," he says.

The reason for Poff’s decision was simple. "You get more bang for your buck," he explains. Commenting further, Poff adds that the output has a distinct offset look, enabling a seamless transfer of the short run (under 1000 prints) off the press to the imagePRESS C7000, freeing up the plate-making, presses and staff for longer runs.

Canon’s imagePRESS C7000VP is designed to handle digital, offset and coated substrates between 80 and 300gsm at full speed, offering no-compromise stock handling along with the quality to complement offset press production.

In addition to this, a dual-fusing system expands the colour gamut on coated stocks to an impressive 134 percent of Japan colour, exceeding the colour accuracy of offset. This allows printers to differentiate their services by offering customers more customised print runs with a greater variety of output options to help make short runs and challenging jobs more profitable.

Since installing the C7000 in September last year, the staff of Ferntree Print are more than happy with the results. "It’s exceeded all our expectations and the customers are very impressed," he says.

"The C7000 delivers what it promised and the Canon team are committed to seeing any problems through – from start to finish."
